Rachel’s Challenge Kindness Carnival

The Rachel’s Challenge initiative in Enfield and the Enfield Public Schools is in its 7th year. This bullying and violence abatement program is inspired by the life and loss of Rachel Joy Scott, who was the first person killed in the Columbine High School shootings on April 20, 1999.  Each year, more than 2 Million students experience Rachel’s Challenge and have the opportunity to accept the challenges, modeled after Rachel’s life and writings.  The message: How small acts of kindness and acceptance motivate us to consider our relationships with the people we come in contact with every day and this will begin a chain reaction of kindness and compassion, which positively affects the climate in our schools and community.

June 6, 2019 from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM the Enfield Public Schools will hold a Kindness Carnival.  This event will take place at Enfield High School located at 1264 Enfield Street. During this event, Pre-K through 5th grade students can redeem kindness coins received at school or during the event, for acts of kindness they have engaged in.  Students will use the coins to play games and have fun.  We hope you can be part of this powerful event and support this effective initiative in our schools.
